Joint Concert with Featherstone Male Voice Choir

CYM were invited to perform with Featherstone Male Voice Choir at Featherstone Methodist Church on Friday 9th March to raise money for the Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract.

Calling All Clarinettists!

Castleford Young Musicians are always on the lookout for new band and choir members, but we're currently very keen to invite any clarinettists who may wish to join us. There are NO AUDITIONS, so if you're aged between 8 and 25 and are at least grade 1 standard please come down to a rehearsal and see what you think! Contact us for more information.



Keep in the know!

From September 2017 we will be using e-mail (rather than letters) as our primary method of communication with members and parents, so please sign up to our mailing list (here) as soon as possible.

For everyone else, we'll be launching a brand new (occasional) e-mail newsletter very soon, so please sign up for all the latest CYM news and events!

Become a Friend of CYM

Our annual patron's scheme 'Friends of CYM' is a great way to support Castleford Young Musicians if you're not musical or you fall outside our membership age range! Memberships renew each August, but between now and the end of January we have a special half-year offer for only £5 (single membership) or just £6 (joint membership). There is no commitment from August 2017, but if you would like to continue supporting us, membership for the following 12 months will be £12 (single) and £15 (joint).

This is an excellent way to help CYM with their fundraising efforts - if you're interested please complete the form on our Friends page. Contact us if you would like more information.

Promotional Event

A big thank you to those who volunteered during our promotional morning on 9th September at Carlton Lanes Shopping Centre, Castleford. We gave out plenty of leaflets and had some interest, so hopefully this results in a few new members for our band and choir!

Exam Congratulations

Congratulations to Alfie Southernwood (Grade 1) and Maxx Lancaster (Grade 4) who both passed their recent Saxophone exams!


New Concert

We've just added a new concert to our events page - a performance at St Joseph's Primary School in Castleford on Friday 7th July to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. As this is the same venue as our planned rehearsal, the evening will begin with refreshments at 7pm with the concert beginning at 7:30pm. Tickets will be available on the door and are priced at £5 adults, with children just £2.
